B-380 is a Project 641B diesel submarine.


Sevastopol, Black Sea Fleet


The sub was laid down on October 15, 1981 at Krasnoe Sormovo shipyard (Nizhniy Novgorod) and launched in August 1982 under name of Gorkovsky Komsomolets. The sub was commissioned in the same year. In 1992 the name of Gorkovsky Komsomolets was abolished. In 2008 the sub obtained the name of Svyatoi Kniaz Georgy.


In 1985 and 1986 the sub won the Navy Commander's Prize for attack of surface ships unit. In 1991 she was laid up for repair at Sevastopol shipyard; the crew was reduced to minimum. The sub was planned to be handed over to Ukraine, but in 1996 Ukrainian government refuse to accept the sub due to her poor technical condition. In 2000 Lazarevskoye Admiralty shipyard started to recover and upgrade the sub by governmental investment. Sovetskiy district of Nizhniy Novgorod took the sub under patronage. In 2004 the sub was completely manned. In 2006 she was blessed by priest Viktor Polyakov upon benediction of Georgy Archbishop of Nizhniy Novgorod and Arzamas.
